of the family but it also happens to save everybody a lot of money. mr. limbaugh was perfectly happy to read on-air advertisements for a company that has wills and living wills. just like advance directives, just like end of life counseling is an unequivocally good thing. which brings us back to the cluster fox nonsense that is glenn beck. after he called president obama a racist with, quote, a deep seated hatred for white people, his advertisers fled. the latest, conagra, roche, radio shack bringing the total to a dozen advertisers who have dropped beck. he remains on the air for now able to preach the same lies about health care reform but congressman rick larsen of washington has a perfect rebuttal as displayed in larson's recent town hall meeting. >> now, folks will say that's not true but i've got facts on my side and you've got glenn beck on your side. >> my hero. as for mr. beck's hypocrisy on the subject, as assembled by "the daily show" here is mr. beck lately. >> america already has the best health care in the world. we do take care of our sick. you're about to lose the best health ca
opinion. they're discrediting themselves. risch lum b ris rush limbaugh has an audience who likes to listen to that kind of -- let me not characterize rush limbaugh, but it's becoming more and more limited audience. i think the vast majority of the american people want something done. they know we're trying to do the right thing, and they certainly don't want this country to be guided by the likes of rush limbaugh and that kind of nonsensical rhetoric. >> congressman, you mentioned your decades of experience in washington. it seems to be your sense by what i'm hearing that you do not believe then that this is a grassroots effort, that you believe this is being orchestrated. who do you think is behind it all? >> i think the industries that have benefitted from the status quo, some of the insurance companies, certainly some of the very conservative groups who don't want change. they're opposed to government involvement. now -- and it's easy for the american people to pick up on that. in fact, i have had people say to me, keep the government off my medicare. well, of course, medicare

and columnist, david limbaugh. great to see, you kind of like old home week. i guess president obama is the uniter after all. i'm glad we got some laughter out of that. this business about the death boards and his post office statement. we have to get the post office quote on the screen. what was your impression of mr. obama's format. >> this is no longer a hospitable format. he thinks he's on the campaign trail. there's no more clinton or bush to blame. it's his health care plachblt i was completely astonished by the statement of the post office. i would think as the president of the united states he is essentially head of the post office. he criticized them and said they're the ones who have problems, the private sector u.p.s. and fedex do well. should that mean we only get sick monday through friday on obama-care? >> do we have that post office quote? can i run that again or cooking it up again. keith, was that you butting in. >> you guys are taking one little comment out of context. he's talking about the importance of private and public competition, republicans want when it come

limbaugh or anne coulter or michelle malkin. he is a united states senator. there should be certain things he does not do or say. >> do we assume in both of these cases somebody got to them both in isakson's case and in grassley's and said if do you not repudiate what you seem to have said yesterday this good behavior, this societally cognizant willingness to compromise, if you don't do that we'll never contribute to you again? >> well, remember. senator grassley has received over $2 million from the drug and health insurance industry since 2003. but equally troubling, keith, is the fact that senator bachus has received $1.5 million just in the last two years so there are people who can really do everything they can and use fear to undermine reform. that's why we haven't had reform for so many years. >> could there be a silver lining in this, arianna? with the senator embracing supposedly the good senator among the republicans embracing the death panel nonsense could that be a tipping point in terms of freeing democrats from this nonsense waste of time, you can't talk sense to a stone, fal

were going the air and callg the presidenof the united states a nazi as rush limbaugh has repeated done. when mark levin-- yomentioned hi- he said the president of the united stes is literally at w with the american people. and then people begi unsurprisingly, showing upt rallies withuns. wellobviously, if the president were. i mean, folks, if i bieved the president of the united statewere a nazi, re planning a fascist takeov, it would be contemptibly cowardly ofe not too everything in my power, including contemplatg violen, to resist such a thin every decent person ould do that. that's why you don say it when it's not true. and i mean, one of the ws that the constitution system works is with me understanding that thpeople on the other side ha slightly different priorities, but they share yr constitutional vues. they have invested in thsame stem. the problems they've got a hard problems. and evenf you don't like their answers, you have to have so restraint inhe way you talk about them, as you would hop they would have out you. and i think it'sust trageous. it is dangerous. it's dangerou
't want to to find whack jobs at home just like they don't want to go against rush limbaugh. on one hand they are saying the democrats are making an issue of it, on the other hand, you have a legitimate birther people who, i think are crazy, but not one single republican member willing to say, you know what? this is ridiculous and we need to move on. you can't really have it both ways. >> john boehner said as much two days ago, but the near fact that karen thinks we should be talking about this -- >> i don't think we should be talking about it. you are more concerned about getting licks against the president rather than solving problems. chris wanted to talk about it. >> just a minute, todd. why do you think roy blunt is out there pushing this issue? we can show it again if you would like, but he wants to see the president's birth certificate. he was up there on the platform during inaugural day. why didn't he come down to ask the guy about to be sworn in to see his birth certificate. why is he doing this now? >> i have no answer. the national review, which is hardly a left wing publicat
tactic. they have attacked fox, rush limbaugh, sean hannity, health care industry, banks, big business. they always need someone to hate. >> campaign politics is about division in my view, having covered a lot of campaigns, but who do you make your enemies? in the end you need insurance companies. no one says this, his plan, insurance companies won't turn a profit. that's going to happen. sean: even the c.b.o. says, tens of millions of people are going to be forced into that public option, if you believe the heritage foundation. they are predicting 88 million people will be forced out. >> look, the administration has to answer these questions. we can't just go blindly into accepting health care program that hasn't had any -- i mean, look, we haven't divided the health care program up enough to understand what the future is going to bring about and i think the american people right now are frustrated. you know, i can't take the two sides of this, but what i can tell you, i'm getting emails every day from the american people and they feel they aren't being listened to. sean: it's one thi
of rush limbaugh whose website compares the reform supporters to nazis. a conservative group that's backing the protest insists the anti-reform movement is there. how do you respobd to the charge that this is all orchestrated and artificial if it's coming from talk show hosts and websites? >> reporter: if that were the case, you wouldn't see the massive turnout. the average person is at work when rush limbaugh is on the radio. >> reporter: out of nowhere, a bystander listening in came up to us to say ditto. >> thank you very much. >> you happen to agree with this gentleman? >> i do. >> reporter: democrats are flexing their grassroots. the former obama volunteers are back in campaign mode. >> we have folks who are anxious about change who love to play the fear card. >> reporter: it's about facts not fear. but time and again, he falsely compared democratic health care proposals to a canadian style universal system. >> the ones coming out the house are not canadian style. you know that? >> universal health care in any way, shape, or form is a bad notion. >> reporter: as for senator j
at these town hall meetings. rush limbaugh calling them nazis and now nancy's calling these protesters un-american. what a colossal mess. we had the poll last week saying obama washington is divisive. it's just this is a mess. what do you do if you're inside the white house? how do you call a time-out and say enough already? >> i don't know how you do it, joe. joe, i'm afraid that all the beginning of the obama a administration, you are down there on the mall that's thousands and thousands of people that air of good feeling and national unity and the belief that obama may just be that agent of change that can bring us together i'm afraid that has all dissipated and is all but gone. he's not down to bush levels but he's down to the point where he about won the election but it is a much more divisive situation. this is one of the ugliest debates i've ever seen. >> it is. it's ugly. you know, mika, we had said this before, several months ago, that every president over the past 16 years, 17 years, said they're going to change washington. bill clinton was going to bring us all together. divisi

blaming boogiemen. stop blaming top delay. stop blaming karl rove. they have no power. rush limbaugh has no power. fox news has no power to stop this. democrats own washington, d.c. so stop setting up strawmen. like barack obama's been doing from day one and then knocking them down. >> does that mean i can still blame newt gingrich for quite a bit of our problems? >> you and dale hunt can get together and have a newt party if you want. >> don't give them a target. >> seriously, it's just laughable. they always set up these straw men and knock them down. people have figured it out. wait a second. they own the senate. they own the house. they own the white house. conservatives can't do anything. we can't do anything to stop healthcare reform. if democrats decide they want to pass healthcare reform, there's not a damn thing a conservative in america can do to stop it. >> joining the conversation, contributing editor to "new york" magazine, gabriel sherman. he writes, "brooks frequently seems more sympathetic toward obama than the liberal paul krugman. he has written columns praising obama's

like premier broadcasting who simulates large shows like rush limbaugh among them. that is a simulation of the fine we have been discussing, which is dollar for dollar of their total operating costs. just to be fair. glenn: so it's not a fine if you're a conservative radio station? >> he has laid out a road map for liberal attacks to attack conservative and christian talk stations, however. glenn: ok. >> you said forget the fairness doctrine. a month after his report came out he wrote a report called "forget the fairness doctrine" in which he uses a way for them to threaten licenses if they are politically opposed to what they're saying on the air. glenn: it is all localism. >> an media diversity. glenn: yeah. they will take those licenses, and keep everybody afraid to put anything on the air. if they do put something on the air, somebody can challenge it, they can take that license away from them at the end of the year, and give it to some acorn-like group, or some minority group, and then you have lost that radio station. >> it's freddie mac and fannie mae for the radio industry is wh
